Robert Mitchell was a genius who managed to build an antimatter bomb in his basement. After almost wiping out half East Bay of California, he was arrested by the S.H.I.E.L.D. for being considered a super-terrorist. Director Nick Fury saw potential in Mitchell and asked him to join the S.H.I.E.L.D.'s super human unit known as the West Coast Ultimates, a secret version of the known super hero team, for which he underwent a mutation to receive powers.[1]

After failing to find the terrorist Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, his teammate Wonder Man Hulked-out, forcing his teammates to fight him. This situation, along the team's previous rogue attitude, made S.H.I.E.L.D. decide they were too dangerous. Nick Fury decided to put them in stasis tubes until they were be truly needed.

Nick Fury planned to use the West Coast Ultimates against the Maker and the Children of Tomorrow but didn't. During the civil war, California tried to become an independent country, but they were forced by President Captain America to remain a part of the United States. The special adviser to California's governor, Spokesperson Ford discovered about the West Coast Ultimates, taking them from S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist Hugo Lopez's lab and decided to unleash them against the Ultimates.[2]

Vision's task was to enter Stark Industries's J-RICE Orbital Energy Platform and destroy it, although he revealed to have made a separate deal with Ford, to reprogram the J-RICE and make it fall on California, so Captain America and his government would be blamed for the "attack". After reprogramming the satellite, which was later stopped by the Ultimates, Vision said goodbye to his teammates.[1]
